I love the look of foil, but haven’t pulled out my Glimmer machine as often as I’d like. With the new Yay You release from Simon Says Stamp having a wonderful selection of foiling options, I got my self set up and had a play. I used the smooth 130lb white card from Simon to get lovely clean foiled results, but then when I wanted to pair the butterfly I chose with a background I had, I switched to foiling on watercolour card. You don’t get as clean a result, but it fits with my style more.

all on one card!
The foiling plates are great for foiling as you’d expect LOL but they are also great for dry embossing. I ran the Intricate Floral Background plate through with an embossing sandwich and watercolour card. You get a lovely deeply etched impression of the plate. I cut a piece of this along with a slither of Gold Mirror card and then started playing around with possible arrangements.
I finished off with a few gold sequins and white enamel dots.
Just look at that shine and dimension too! I can see my foiling machine staying on my desk from now on.
For the greeting, I picked a sentiment from the Reverse Wedding Sentiment Strips set, trimmed it out popped it on top with more foam tape.
